IOC admitted to the Olympics athletes from North Korea


I am happy to announce that DPRK athletes will take part in the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang in 2018. The IOC today made an exceptional decision and singled out a quota for 22 athlete, who will take part in three sports activities in five disciplines in Pyeongchang. They will be accompanied by a 24 trainer and officials.
- he said.

This decision was made after a meeting of representatives of the DPRK and South Korea, the organizing committee of Pyeongchang-2018 and the IOC, which took place on Saturday. After the meeting, a declaration was signed on the participation of the North Korean delegation at the Olympics. The total number of the DPRK delegation at the upcoming Olympics will be 46 people (including 22 athlete), as well as 21 media representatives. The head of the IOC announced that the decision to allocate additional quotas for North Korean athletes was taken as an exception.

Following the meeting, Bach, South Korea’s Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism To Chong-hwan, South Korean President of the National Olympic Committee (NOC) Lee Ki Heung, head of the NOC, and North Korean Sports Minister Il Guk Kim, head of the organizing committee of the Games Lee Hee Bom and President of the International Federation Skiing (FIS) Gianfranco Casper signed a declaration of the Korean Peninsula countries on the participation of DPRK athletes in the Games.

          “This time, though, North Korea was lucky!” But how does Russia cope with the pain in the nose, into which the IOC with WADA bent us?

              It is now in the order of things when the proletarian comes to work with his chains. So let them sew to themselves. So to speak, they will taste all the charms of life. But there is confidence that this time they will try. And then, as everyone “packs”, it will be possible to organize a cluster of the rapid development of light industry. Then woodworking. Etc.

      They, the DPRK, also have no positions in the leading sports bodies! For that, the leader has steel Faberge and there is no selling elite with money and children over the hill! hi

    Refusing some countries to participate in the Olympics is complete idiocy. As a result of this, all the power of our (and not only our diplomacy) should be directed in this direction to convince the foreign affairs agencies of specific countries that it is impossible to impose any restrictions on the sports organizations of certain countries for political reasons. Sport is a sport. And that’s it. And all countries must recognize this. The task is difficult, but solvable.

    It does not make sense to put pressure on North Korea by WADA and the IOC, for the simple reason that there are no alarm whiners in the DPRK who could scream through the media and social networks: Un leaked everything, salaries are low, everyone does not like us, etc. etc.

    -----------------------------
    For you and me, this is idiocy if you follow the Olympic Charter and other fundamental documents, which, after the shameful meeting of the IOC Executive Committee on December 5, 2017, are nothing more than wrapping paper. This is one of the methods of unfair competition and a way of pressure on Russia, on the people of Russia, to be more precise. To the general people who are in the Government, they care less.
    PS The IOC decided to reduce the pool of Russian athletes from 500 to 389. They flexed, as they say. And it's not evening yet. All the words about the "lifting of sanctions on the OCD after December 5" are utter nonsense and bullshit.

    The IOC simply decided to show by the example of the DPRK what it is "honest and principled." How does he stand for "the cause of peace and sport outside politics." This is PR and hype, no more. The DPRK team does not claim to be on the pedestal that the "right" athletes from the "right" countries should have.

      Yes, even if they would have claimed, anyway a similar measure would hardly have been applied to them - this is a good measure where there is dissatisfaction with one’s own country - add oil to the fire, and if there is no fire, they will even say thanks for the oil.
